The video and the pictures show the stunning landscapes of Lake Como and the surrounding mountains and will be downloadable for free and available on Vimeo and YouTube by the end of June. It will be shown as a worldwide preview on 18th June in Como, at Teatro Sociale, at 9.30 pm (free entrance).
During his career, the French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand has realized a wide inventory of the most beautiful landscapes of the world, shot from helicopters or hot-air balloons. For him the sky is indeed a privileged point of view to admire the beauty of nature disclosing without barriers and in an unique way.
"My family has been owning for a long time a house in the north of Italy, near the Alps. After a long time I was back in this region that is simply amazing. I was delighted by having the chance to shoot a video on the Lake Como, especially in springtime, when nature awakes with all its colours", says Arthus-Bertrand.
This project, promoted by Gerolamo Saibene and the TEDxLakeComo team, will be fulfilled with the support of SistemaComo2015, of the Chamber of Commerce of Como, of the towns of Como, Bellagio, Cernobbio, Tremezzina, Menaggio, Varenna, and of Jean Marc Droulers and Michele Canepa.
